no spongebob will be in Side A while Funtastic World will be in side B because only side A can house 3d films

Totally not true. Remember SB3D didn't not operate during the last month of operation in 2005. Both sides were playing different flims for Fearfest. So even though you are correct in saying that side A is the only side that can play 3-d flims it can also play 2-d. And from what I heard SB will not be back in 2006, but we shall see.

The 3D projector doesn't necessarily have to show 3D films. I think the way it works is that there are actually 2 projectors for 3D and they only run 1 for the 2D shows.

 

Also, I can also confirm that Spongebob will be on side A. Just trust as all on this. :D

That is actually the case they are 2 projectors to make it 3-d.

 

The only reason I was thought SB3D was over. I thought when we heard that we were getting a new flim, that it was reported that this new flim would replace SB3D. If I can find that tread it may have even been at PKIC I will post what I find.

 

- A Hanna-Barbera film will be showing at the Action Theater, apparently replacing the SpongeBob film, at all 5 Paramount Parks

 

 

So I guess we will find out.

I have a question: Does anyone know why they still use film projectors and don't just upgrade to digital projectors that use files :huh: It's ridiculous, just like how The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman (IOA) has all this expensive equipment, that's energy consuming and hard to maintain, just to keep the film dust free so the 3D works properly; when The Curse of DarKastle (BGW) just uses these extremely "tiny" memory cards.

 

It's so much easier, and less costly just to upgrade to all digital, which even gives you a better picture quality. Then again, I doubt PKI has any of the expensive protective equipment, which would explain the terrible condition SpongeBob SquarePants 3D was in last season (even, at times, taking away from the 3D effects) :rolleyes: I'm just stating that I feel it would be a good investment, that's all!

Yes PKI does have those things to protect the flim from dust. But alot of things could affect the quality of the flim. Anytime a flim is ran over and over again it's going to wear out. If the bulb is dim then it will effect the projection. Those Action Theater Flims are right very expensive too.

***UPDATE***

 

OK, now I present the final piece of the puzzle...A PRESS RELEASE B) Also, judging by the poster presented with the press release, I'd venture to say Universal Studios sold the rights to distribute The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera to SimEx!Iwerks. If this is the case, then we may see it start poping up all over the place in the near future.

 

 

New Hanna Barbera Attraction Debuts at Paramount's Kings Dominion

 

Theme park adventure rockets guests through The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera.

 

DOSWELL, Va.—Classic animated characters from cartoons such as The Flintstones, The Jetsons and Scooby-Doo take a starring role in The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera, the new Hollywood attraction at Paramount’s Kings Dominion that takes guests on an unforgettably fun family adventure in the Paramount Action FX Theatre.

 

 

 

When villainous Dick Dastardly and his sidekick dog Muttley kidnap Elroy Jetson, park guests are in for a wild ride. Attraction-goers help Yogi Bear rescue Elroy as he dashes through Bedrock, Jetson City and Scooby-Doo’s Haunted Castle. Guests will fly, drive, and dive with Yogi Bear while sitting in seats that are synchronized to move with the action on the screen.

 

 

 

The adventure takes place in Kings Dominion’s Action FX Theatre. The Action FX Theatre is a 13,000 square-foot building holding two, four level terrace theatres. The unique two-person seats are set on motion bases that allow for a wide range of movement that is fully in sync with the action coming from the 26 feet by 59 feet screen. In addition, the theatre’s digital-based six channel audio system provides high quality surround sound to fully immerse guests in the story.

 

 

 

The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera will debut at all five Paramount theme parks this summer. For fans that prefer to watch the show without the motion, stationary seats are available in the theatre. Guests must be 44 inches tall to experience the motion seats. There is no minimum height requirement for the stationary seats. Locally, The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera will be ready to entertain guests when Paramount's Kings Dominion opens for the season on Saturday, April 1.

 

 

Paramount’s Kings Dominion is a 400-acre theme park that’s home to more than 200 rides, shows and attractions. The park brings the best of Hollywood entertainment to the Mid-Atlantic with one of the largest coaster collections on the East Coast; two children’s areas—Nickelodeon Central and Kidzville; and WaterWorks, a 19-acre water park playground that’s included with admission. Paramount’s Kings Dominion is located 20 miles north of Richmond, Va. and 75 miles south of Washington, D.C. off Interstate 95 at Exit 98.

 

 

 

Paramount’s Kings Dominion is owned and operated by Paramount Parks.

 

 

 

Paramount Parks (a unit of CBS Corporation) is a leading developer and operator of world-class theme parks and location-based attractions, entertaining more than 13 million guests annually.

I'm surprised that this 15 year old ride video is actually going to play again at a different park. This thing was a classic at Universal... I'll be looking forward to riding it again. It's a great ride, the motion is fun, and the film is memorable and well-done.
